Posen studied Law, never abandoned the profession and worked in the Russian judicial system for more than forty years. He pursued the arts independently and was self-taught in drawing and sculpture, but once the Peredvizhniki movement accepted him as one of their own he took part in nearly all their exhibitions. When the Russian Academy of Arts invited Posen to become a member, he initially declined, citing not having had a formal education in the arts. Thus he was dedicated to Law and Art alike but also treasured his official status as an amateur, even as his artistic peers recognised his sculptures for their poised truthfulness and their superb technical execution.
